Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Erik H VanIterson, M.S., M.Bio(University of Minnesota School of Kinesiology)
Description: Focusing on the most current research and findings in the area of neuromuscular exercise physiology, this book incorporates learning principles and concepts of other scientific specialties to provide a comprehensive understanding of what constitutes the field of neuromuscular exercise physiology.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide students with a book that is highly detailed, current, and readable book that focuses on the science — both basic and applied — that constitutes the field.
Audience: It is appropriate for higher level undergraduate or graduate students. Readers should have more than a basic understanding of exercise physiology and other basic sciences. It is ideal for students who are interested in the integration the fields of neuroscience, muscle physiology, and exercise physiology and how they impact and complement one another.
Features: The book offers a plethora of historical and current research to support the principles and concepts related to the sciences that make up the field of neuromuscular exercise physiology, e.g., muscle physiology, exercise physiology, neuroscience, biochemistry, and biology. It excels in breaking down the research and highlighting the important findings that have shaped the field to make it is what it is today, as well as showing how the field is constantly changing as the research advances.
Assessment: The book manages to be comprehensive and highly detailed without being burdensome with too much unnecessary information. The text is complemented well with appropriate figures to help readers visualize both basic and advanced concepts. The cited research and its currency make the book highly credible and useful in today's classroom. The book is particularly important for any students interested neuromuscular exercise physiology.
